A campaign to clamp down on dog fouling in a neighbourhood on the outskirts of Norwich is set to continue.

Joint patrols by officers from Thorpe St Andrew Safer Neighbourhood Team and Broadland District Council are set to continue along the walkway between Sainsbury's in Pound Lane and the Broadland Business Park to catch those who do not clear up after their pet.

People living in the area first raised their concerns about a minority of dog owners littering the pathway three months ago, sparking the police and Broadland District Council to take action.

Measures taken so far include extra high visibility patrols, extra clean ups and new signs advising that the area is under surveillance.
